City Talks - Bridges & Pathways: Small Practice and the City

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

28 MAY 2018


CITY TALKS: Dr Sam Kebbell

Bridges & Pathways: Small Practice and the City
City Gallery Wellington, Civic Square
Monday 18 June, 6pm
Free entry

Kapiti Island needs a visitor centre, and Hataitai needs better pedestrian routes. Sam divides his time between academia and professional practice and will talk about recent design research around projects that extends the remit of traditional practice and adds to the public discussion about architecture.
City Talks is an ongoing series initiated by the New Zealand Institute of Architects Wellington Branch and presented in partnership with City Gallery Wellington. Its purpose is to foster discussion about architecture for a broader audience in a city that cares to openly discuss ideas relevant to our future.

Sam Kebbell runs KebbellDaish Architects and lectures at the School of Architecture, Victoria University of Wellington. He completed his MDes in History and Theory at Harvard in 1999, and he worked in Boston, New York, and Amsterdam before starting KebbellDaish in 2002. In 2015, he was an ADAPTr Research Fellow at the University of Westminster in London. In 2016, he finished his PhD at RMIT in Melbourne with research that revealed the creative potential of a tension between local cultures and international ideas.

The talk will be followed by refreshments.


City Talks are free to attend and held in the Adam Auditorium, City Gallery Wellington, Civic Square. The talk schedule is as follows:

Monday 13 August, 6pm
Today you have called my name
Gareth Watkins & Roger Smith walk us through Wellingtons buildings and places highlighting the city’s rich LGBTI rainbow heritage.

Further talks to be confirmed.

Gordon Campbell: On The Changes Hitting The Economy, Work, And The Benefit System

Time is so stretched – early March feels like a distant country – that planning rationally for what the economy might look like in two, three, six months or a year feels more like an exercise in science fantasy. Treasury projections have never been particularly reliable (too rosy by far, usually) but they’re what we’ve got right now. In the foreseeable… will unemployment really be in double figures and/or up to one third of the entire work force? Yes, quite possibly... More>>

Gordon Campbell: On National's Regulation Crusade

Lets step back in time now, to simpler days and to simple-minded solutions. So…. if National gets elected, landlords will once again be able to evict tenants at will, raise rents anytime they like, and ignore the need to install a healthy standard of heating in the homes they put out to rent. This promised ‘bonfire of regulations’ is being done in the name of cutting red tape... More>>
